This Thursday night in New York, the Joshua Liner Gallery will be opening Shawn Barber’s (interviewed) Memoir: The Tattooed Portraits Series. The exhibition featuring new oil paintings by the Los Angeles-based artist is his second with the Chelsea showspace and his most personal to date. The series documents much in the tattoo world including friends like fellow tattoo artists including the celebrated Shige of Yokohama, Japan – a stunning 6-x-9-foot triptych, a panorama with nine full-length views of the artist, Barber’s largest painting to date. Of note, the showing is presented in conjunction with the upcoming release of his new book Memoir: The Tattooed Portraits Series.
